congrats on making a start! that's always the first step. don't get to anxious about it. people think that once you work out that the weight is just gonna fall off and when they see that it hasn't, they get discouraged. so just keep reminding yourself that it will take some time, that if you keep it up, it'll pay off in the long run since any excercise is good for you.

one thing that is good is that if you've been keeping up with the excercise and diet, after awhile, you'll start to notice a difference and the weight will fall off faster.

Thanks Liz,your so sweet.I think the only reason i had the nerve to join was only cause my friend joined with me.She is getting married in oct so thats her motive.I just want to be firm again,i dont think im overweight,i weigh 120 and im 5ft1,but before my kids i was like 98 pounds
I dont want to be that skinny just toned and healthy.but as for you i think the only reason people would be watching you is cause your so beautiful
thanks for responding to my lil insecuritie thread.

But after that, I gained confidence because I realized that everyone there is too busy working out to really pay attention to what you're wearing or what's your weight. And I think if the gym you joined is like Curves, they will be the least judgemental people ever! I had a trial there once and everyone was so nice and friendly. They seem to help each other out. Good luck and hope you're not so afraid about it anymore! Thanks charmaine,Im starting to feel excited again,my first class is a pilates class,cross your fingers for me,lol

I belong to a local gym - you pay per month ($45) I haven't been there in months though...
I feel like an idiot - because half the time I end up having to go alone... and I'm so out of shape that I'll do like 20 min. walking incline on the treadmill & be ready to leave! lol Meanwhile there are people there running full speed for what seems like hours!
I get bored easy - so that doesn't help the situation - and I'm the type of person that has to see results like, yesterday! Or else I get frustrated & discouraged. Plus sitting at a desk 8 hours a day has gotten me pretty lazy that I just don't feel like doing anything!
Now I can go roller blading, bike riding or play tennis (well attempt to... most of the time I'm just running for the ball I missed) and be fine... I guess doing something outdoors and actually getting somewhere when I walk is easier. (I can spend 5 hours walking around the mall with no problems whatsoever!
) I really need to do something - but I like having company... and there's never anyone around that wants to do anything... so it's hard.

I get nervous like that too. My mom always says "what makes you think you're so special that everybody's watching YOU?" And, really, she does have a point...

Yeah I do a lot of weights and I'm always the only girl so I notice people looking at me then, but other than that, I don't pay attention. If they are looking at you, maybe they are just trying to figure out how to do that machine or something! Seriously you will have an awesome time and the gym is a great place to meet new people
